A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Rail Fence

 Rail Fence Block

Today we’ll make this cutie.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!



  • 1 rectangle 1″ x 9″ of 3 different fabrics

Sew them together being sure

to press each seam flat as sewn,

then to one side so the seam stays straight.


Check to be sure the strip set is straight by laying a ruler over it.


If it’s not perfectly straight,

take & press it again.

If you sewed straight seams,

you should be able to straighten it out.

Cut strip set into 4 segments 2″ long.


Arrange then sew the block.

Press as shown below.

Remove stitches in center seam allowance.

Make a couple or few a more!


Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group.

We want to see your progress too!


Just Keep Sewing…
